MSD and the Social Wellbeing Agency have released a new report on the needs of older people in health, housing, finance, and social connection. Amongst the findings reported are that:

  • 17 percent (89,000) of older people experience social connection vulnerability.
  • European older people experience the highest rates of social connection vulnerability, both proportionally and numerically.
  • Social connection vulnerability increases significantly by age from 65 onwards.
  • Women are significantly more affected than me
